5 Tips to a Great Date

1) Strategy – use the person’s name
During the first meeting or conversation, use your date’s name strategically 3 times. Place it at different parts of the sentence. A person’s name is the most important word to them. People at a subconscious level love their name!


2) Ask open-style questions
Questions that start with the letter W – Why, What, Where work! These questions help you open up the conversation. It will allow the person to answer with as much or as little information as they like.


3) Paraphrase your date’s answer back to them
This will help to confirm that you have understood what your date has said (and prevent any misunderstandings). Good communication is key in all relationships!


4) Focus on things they are passionate about
If you get your date talking about something they are passionate about, you automatically get a heart connection!


5) Conclude the conversation
Don’t let the conversation drag on forever. End it on a high! This will leave your date wanting more!
